Had to go back to Dumaguete to pick up my receipt for the Annual report, why can't they just give me a receipt after paying the 310 pesos from last week?

 

They must like traffic jams and pollution. Hardly any place to park your cars due to improvements LOL

I did mine yesterday - new office and new regime by the looks of it here in iloilo.  So, obviously it took much longer than usual but this may be because I went on the 1st "real' working day of the Annual Reporting process so fair enough.  

An added complication was my ACR expires early February so had to apply for a new one.  That in itself wasn't particularly hard BUT I had a change of address as well.  Now, i did report this when i moved (admittedly only at the next Annual Report time so already late) but it seems the process to change address was not done so, technically, yesterday was the 1st time I notified them - an expensive situation as it means monthly fines back to the time of moving but hey ho, lesson learned.  Of course, i could have made a big deal of this but when it comes to government officials here, and anywhere actually, it's best to put on either the humble cap or the daft lad cap and plead ignorance and stupidity rather than the alternative.  Not that it helped but at least i got some sympathy!   

So guys, if you're on a 13A and move address, make sure you notify the BI promptly and that they actually act on your notification.   

 

When I did the address change on my 13a I was 6 weeks at the new address and I also got a fine.As you say just suck it up as confrontation with any government office here will get you nowhere.

I use a family address as my permanent address here.  Where I live at the particular moment, I do not worry about.  I would not recommend misleading a government office... but... do as I say not as I do ha ha

At 200php a month fine, that could be expensive if you were ever caught out!  That said, do they ever check - no, but they may change their approach in future as more and more immigration problems occur.  Then again, if they did change their approach you could notify them at that point - how would they know when you changed address?  :89:

I went in this time with 3,000 pesos in my pocket.  Utter shock when it was only 310!  

I guess it pays to be on time.
